Comment Re: Well, once the panels are installed (Score 1) 415

Solar cells from the 70s are still something like 70-80% of their original efficiency. They die slowwwwly. Far more likely in such time is we'll find better materials that are much more efficient to replace them with. 20% conversion today is pretty low. If we could get that up to 30 or 40%, that would enable solar even in cloudy climates.

Are you fracking kidding me? You're equating the group of people refuting the nonsensical anti-AGW claims with science ( "10 of the hottest years occured in the last 18", "oceeans are absorbing some of the heat") with the camp that trots out the same fracking tired arguments that have been refuted over and over again in every fracking thread? Science isn't a "camp", it's the conclusion you reach after looking at the data.

The problem with these threads is there are too many idiot trolls who think themselves oh so much smarter than the people who spend their entire lives studying the topic of climate.
